Please have a look at my mini (in all ways) FIW game using Donnybroook.

Very nice! These guys look a lot like my Blue Moon 15mm FIW figures, also for skirmish gaming, which I think is the best way to do FIW.

I am using One Hour Skirmish Wargaming by John Lamb. It uses a deck of playing cards and sounds very similar to Donnybrook. I started playing this winter and love it, great for solo gaming. The whole mechanism of drawing cards has added a lot of drama and fun to gaming without too much complexity.

Thanks.The figures are QRF. I really like the look of the Blue Moon figures and may get some. Yes skirmish is the way for FIW.
Agreed the cards idea is great for solo games. I'll have a look at the One Hour Games thanks for the tip.
